New online election map for South Cambs voters

A new interactive polling station map has been launched, allowing South Cambridgeshire voters to check online where they can cast their vote on 7 May.

By putting their home postcode into our "Find your polling station" map, voters will be able to see the address and location of their polling station, plus which elections are being held in their village.

Election infographics are also available for the first time, showing which candidates are standing in the South Cambridgeshire Parliamentary and District Council elections and the results for the last time each seat was contested. The infographics can be found at General and Local Elections - 7 May 2015

As well voting for MPs in the South Cambridgeshire and South East Cambridgeshire constituencies, local elections are being held in 19 District Council wards and for four Parish Councils.

Jean Hunter, chief executive and elections returning officer at South Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “We want to encourage as many people to turn out to vote as possible on 7 May, so have brought as much election information together in one place as we can. We hope that voters will find our new map and infographics useful both in the run-up to election day and on the day itself.”
